The lyrics are by Metastasio, taken from one of my favorite poems ever. They talk about the joy of being freed from the pains of unrequited love. This poem was in my literature anthology textbook in high school and I happened to stumble on it right when I was experiencing the same feelings. Nothing really special in that, just about everyone has experienced those at least once in their lives. It’s just that it “clicked” so perfectly with me that I remember it to this day. And when I found out Mozart had written music for them, I simply had to transcribe it.
My transcription is transposed to B major because it sounded better on the synth piano.
